    Student Development

    Student Development is committed to the Ignatian principles grounded within Jesuit education. We invite our students to participate actively in a safe, respectful, diverse and open academic community. We challenge them to grow in mind, body and spirit for the greater good. Hence, students are empowered to develop their unique skills and talents to be critical thinkers, compassionate leaders and contributing citizens in our diverse, ever-changing world.

    As educators, we are called to model our mission as mentors engaged in the pursuit of excellence. Our passion for integrative and holistic learning compels us to work collaboratively with the entire campus community.

    Through our comprehensive array of innovative programs and services, we provide the environment for students to be able to achieve their full potential.
    Student development encompasses residence life, campus security, health and counseling service, campus ministry, food services, judicial affairs, multicultural affairs, student activities and programs, and student senate.
